Ethel D. Frost, 66, passed away Thursday, June 20 at her home.

Ethel was born in the city of Albany. She graduated from Cardinal McCloskey high school. She then attended and graduated from Albany College of Pharmacy.

After graduation she moved to Columbia MD and was a practicing pharmacist there for five years. From there she moved to Vermont and then back to Albany where she continued her pharmacy career.

After Ethel had her third child she retired from pharmacy so that she could concentrate on raising her three children. She was active in her church (teaching religion for 22 years) and also in scouts. Ethel had one Cub Scout den and two Girl Scout troops. As time progressed, Ethel’s health continued to decline forcing her to reduce her outside activities. Ethel hid her pain and her fatigue from her family and constantly gave everything that she had to her family. No matter how bad Ethel felt she alway made time to hep her family, friends, and neighbors. She was loved by everybody and will be sorely missed.

Ethel is survived by her loving husband Bob and her three children Sarah, Kathryn, and Robert Jr. She is also survived by her mother Ethel, her brothers Harry, Charlie, John, and Jim and her sisters Susan, Alice, and Frances.
